Gag Me With A Spoon

Whom or what is Frank Rich talking about?:

For eight years, we’ve been told by those in power that we are small, bigoted and stupid — easily divided and easily frightened. This was the toxic catechism of Bush-Rove politics. It was the soiled banner picked up by the sad McCain campaign, and it was often abetted by an amen corner in the dominant news media. We heard this slander of America so often that we all started to believe it, liberals most certainly included. If I had a dollar for every Democrat who told me there was no way that Americans would ever turn against the war in Iraq or definitively reject Bush governance or elect a black man named Barack Hussein Obama president, I could almost start to recoup my 401(k). Few wanted to take yes for an answer.

First he tells us that Bush-Cheney-McCain told us we’re “small, bigoted and stupid”; then it’s his fellow Democrats who’ve been saying that. Talk about cognitive dissonance.

The only folks I’ve heard saying that Americans would never elect a black are my Canadian relatives and British and European friends. As I said, it’s going to be a long four or eight years for the savants at the Times, assuming the Times isn’t forced to sell to Rupert Murdoch before then.

And then there’s Maureen Dowd. Is it possible that she can continue to churn out such drivel without turning into a kind of Irish Oprah?:

…Everywhere I go, some white person is asking some black person how they feel.

I saw one white customer quiz his black waitress at length at a chic soul food restaurant downtown, over deviled eggs and fried chicken livers, about whether she cried when Barack Obama won. She said she did, and he said he wept like a baby.

He wondered how long she thought it would take the new president to scrape the government up off the floor. “Three years,” she replied authoritatively.

I saw three white women asking a black bartender at the Bombay Club, across Lafayette Park from the White House, if he was happy and what he thought about Jesse Jackson’s flowing tears at Grant Park, given his envious threat to cut off a sensitive part of Obama’s anatomy. “I think the tears were real,” the bartender said.

And did he feel it would be better to refer to Obama as half-white and half-black, or simply black, they pressed.

“Black,” the bartender responded. “Because it means more.”

But one of the women insisted, shouldn’t we call the new president African-American instead of black? And wasn’t he really, really excited about Obama? The bartender gently explained he was not even a Democrat; he was a libertarian.

I saw a white-haired white woman down the block from me running out to strike up a conversation with a black U.P.S. delivery guy, asking him how he felt and what this meant to him.

I was starting to feel guilty. Every time I passed a black patron at a downtown restaurant or a movie or the Kennedy Center, would perfect strangers want me to ask how they were feeling? Or was that condescending and were they sick to death of it?

How would I know if I didn’t ask them?

I heard my cute black mailman talking in an excited voice outside my house Friday, so I decided I should go ask him how he was feeling about everything, the absolute amazement of the first black president. If you don’t count what Toni Morrison said about Bill Clinton, that is.

But should we count it? Was Barack Obama the first or the second black president, or alternatively, the first half-white, half-black president?

I eagerly swung my front door open and joined the mailman’s conversation.

“Are you talking about the election?” I said brightly. “How do you feel?”…

Gag me with a spoon!

The truth is that Barry’s core constituency is, as Paul Begala said when Barry won the nomination, a coalition of “eggheads and African-Americans.” The “eggheads” could be more accurately described as affluent, white, guilt-ridden liberals who think that their vote for a black will expiate America’s “original sin.” They are seriously delusionary if they think that black people are going to give up the race card that easily; now it will be deployed to silence anyone with the gall to criticize the Transformational One.

Blacks view Barry as their deliverer- the one who will, at last!, deliver other people’s ill-gotten wealth to their pockets. Given the Democratic majorities in Congress, they may get their wish.
